Passport program under way at libraries
Numerous libraries in the Greater New Milford area are participating in the first Passport to Connecticut Libraries program through Sept. 30.
The program, sponsored by the Connecticut Library Association, is based on the Wine Trail Passport Program and will run during Library Card Sign Up Month.
Participating public libraries will offer its patrons a Passport that each patron will take to any other participating library to be stamped and receive a small gift.
At the end of the month, patrons will turn in their passports to any participating library to be entered in two drawings: most libraries visited and one random drawing for all participants.
The drawing will be for two adult prizes of $150 each and two children's (under 18) of $100 each.
Northwest libraries include New Milford, Sherman, Oliver Wolcott (Litchfield), Burlington, Brookfield, Cyrenius Booth (Newtown), Goshen, Warren, Harwinton, Kent, Middlebury, Woodbury, Scoville (Salisbury), Minor Memorial (Roxbury), David M. Hunt (Falls Village) and Torrington.
